TV host and media entrepreneur, Wendy Williams’s son fears for her life as she is currently in a treatment center amid her battle with alcohol abuse.
Williams, who is also battling Graves’ disease, previously hid her battle with alcohol abuse. She recently dropped out of a speaking engagement at the Atlanta Women’s Expo in May and was caught drinking at Fresco by Scotto and then The Townhouse in March — a few months after leaving rehab.
“Wendy is at a facility doing her best to be her best,” her manager, Will Selby, told Entertainment Tonight
Selby told the website that he feels like people put out “negative information” about Williams, 58, without ever asking about how she is really doing.
“Why don’t we just stop for a moment and just say, ‘Hey, how is she? Is she doing OK today?’” he added. “Why is that not the focus? Why isn’t that what we’re talking about on a daily basis?”
“Wendy is at a facility doing her best to be her best,” her manager, Will Selby, told ET in a statement.” She’s taking it day by day.” Wendy Williams checks into treatment center as son fears her alcohol abuse might be ?fatal?
Selby’s comments come a day after the former “Wendy Williams Show” host’s son, Kevin Hunter Jr., shared his concerns for his mother’s declining health.

Kelvin Hunter Jr, 22, said that Williams’ body does not process liquor at the same “rate” that a “normal” person’s body would.
“We’ve spoken about it. I’ve said, ‘This is one thing where you don’t know how to approach it normally, and that’s fine,’ and it’s gotten to a point where, yes, it could have that effect that it might be fatal because it affects her way worse than a normal person since it stays in her system,” he explained.
